Ice Cube and Roger Mason Jr. are partnering with a group of investors to launch a new three-on-three, half-court summer league for retired NBA players.
From the Vertical:
Plans include eight teams of five players – including an ex-player as coach, as well as a team captain – that’ll tour together from city to city starting in late June. So far, retired NBA players Kenyon Martin, Stephen Jackson, Jermaine O’Neal, Rashard Lewis and Jason Williams are some of the players committed to play on teams, league officials said.
Hall of Fame guard Gary Payton has agreed to be one of the coaches, league officials said.
Allen Iverson? Let’s goooo!
